    I think the best way to learn is to buy some online courses or textbooks.
    You can ask a professor of computer science to help you find a good book for C++.
    You can find some tutorials on google but I do not know how good they are.
    for instance : Learn C++
    C++ Language Tutorial - C++ Documentation
    C++ Tutorials : Complete Guide
    Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days
    I know that you should use a compiler to help you.

    One book I would recommend is the C++ bible. As with any programming language don't let yourself get overwhelmed with the logic and syntax. Make sure that you learn and understand each concept before you move on. Programming is not half as difficult as people make it out to be and one thing to always keep in mind is that you don't have to memorize everything. A simple search can help you work your way through many of the challenges that you face in programming. Don't try to reinvent the wheel as you go along and never feel negative about using examples and snippets of other people's work (when allowed). The problem with programming lectures is that most of the lectures are theory based, you will learn exponentially faster by just writing your own programs. If you do decide to do a lecture, look for a 70% application and 30% theory setup. It doesn't have to be exactly that setup, but try to find higher end application type lectures. Create, debug, and refactor constantly as you are learning. If you learn from a book, try to implement new concepts into old programs and refactor old code to be more efficient. You would be amazed how much you can learn just by looking at your starter code and refactoring it into something new. One last piece of advice that I can give is to challenge yourself to create something that you have no idea how to create. Read a ton of guides until you finish that project into completion and remember that the more challenging and complex your program that you choose to create, the more you will learn. Sorry if this post is somewhat redundant and long just trying to give my 2¢.

    Oh man this thread cracks me up...

    I just posted this in a more related thread, but I really think that it belongs here too. If you're looking for some good, FREE reference material for most programming languages that you may consider, I defer to my favorite Stack Overflow thread:
    List of freely available programming books (Check out the highest rated answer)

    "C / C++" has a few books listed such as:
    The C book
    Thinking in C++, Second Edition
    Object Oriented Programming in C (PDF)

    Hope this helps!

    Hello
    You can go to freebookspot.es - a great portal fof free books, and search for "C++" and you will find a tone of textbooks that are up-to-date enough. The best one in my experience, though is by "Deitel and Deitel" so you can limit your search by entering "Deitel" for "Author".
    The edition they have is from 2005 but that's not too bad considering C++ does not change all that much and you don't need the latest version to learn the core. The Deitel and Deitel textbook is by far the most famous resource for studying C++. The portal is going to take you to some sharing service where you have to fight off all the spam and select the slow, free download, but it is not all that slow since it is just a book - not too big.
    Cheers!

    You will get millions of sites if you search on the internet by using appropriate keyword. You can also get some good programing books from the market. Buy such books that have many illustrations included in them. Do not just read the book but practice the programs so that you get acquainted with the concepts and logic.

    I would say C, and communicates with low level of development better, as others have said you need to know the hardware very well for low-level programming.

    Also for the programming of the operating system level you are looking for interruptions in programming, which is a little different from JST I have to do a calculator and requires that you know all the hardware very well not to mention the need for manual programming for the hardware necessary to interface with..

    ANSI/ISO C (including C99) is very easy and can be learned even as a first programming language. Can't say the same thing about C++ however

        Hello Friend

        If you really looking for learning C++ then i personally suggest you first find a good and experience teacher who can teach yo properly because learning programming language is so easy but implementation is not easy.
        so according to me you have to find a good teacher who tell you how to implements the code on the time of developing some thing and he also tell you the name of good text book for that. and make your logic creation portion strong which is a impotent part of programing.

    I think the best place to start with learning C++ is learning object-oriented programming at the moment PHP is the best place to start imho, then move on learning a bit about pointers before trying C++.

    Your query has brought many a laugh and many a good grief. However I must ask, what background in logic flow do you have already? Can you write in simple language structure how to resolve a problem? Programming is nothing more than

    data in some form -> manipulate the data -> data in some other form

    and that is true regardless of the language syntax or application of the data.
